Homeschooling doesn’t have to break the bank. The trick is to be creative and know where to find free and nearly free homeschooling resources! Besides the library, you can use your Kindle to supplement your child’s homeschooling for next to nothing! From classic literature, to books for your preschooler, and even books to help mom, you can find a great number of these resources on Amazon’s Kindle. Here are 40 Free or Cheap Books for Kids and Moms!
Remember, you don’t need an actual Kindle to read Amazon’s Kindle books! You can get the free Kindle app for Android, iOS, and even your desktop or laptop! But you may miss out on special features built just for Amazon’s Kindle. I have used the Kindle apps before, and while they’re great, I still prefer using my Kindle Fire.
These books were free or significantly reduced at the time of writing this post, but Amazon does fluctuate quite frequently, so please check prices prior to purchasing! Some books that aren’t free may be free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, which is really worth the money if you get a lot of eBooks!

About Jody: I am a Florida girl through and through living the semi-country, small town life. I am making my way through it with my amazing hubby, 2 beautiful kids, 2 of the best Dachshunds to ever walk the face of the earth, massive amounts of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus. I homeschool, craft, cook, scrapbook, garden, raid the thrift shops, snap 1,000’s of photos, and read when I can grab a spare minute (which is rare). You can find me blogging at Simply Southern Sunshine.
